Frederick Police Department detectives are investigating a Thursday night shooting that left a man with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers responded to the 1000 block of Heather Ridge Drive for a reported shooting around 9:25 p.m., where they found a man who had been shot in the leg, according to a Thursday night news release. The man was transported to a local medical facility.

“Based on witness statements we believe this was a targeted shooting,” Lt. Andrew Alcorn with FPD told the News-Post Friday. “We only know that there were several males involved but we are unable to comment on their description at this time.”

Anyone in the area who observed anything that may pertain to the incident is asked to contact authorities. They can do so anonymously by calling 301-600-8477 or by sending an email to A text tip can be sent to 240-674-8477.

File all the copies you want plumbum, you're still a troll. You never answer what "going after the gangs" looks like. When will you do that? How do you know the sheriff isn't doing just that, working with the MSP, FCP (in whose jurisdiction this incident occurred), and the other independent police in the county? Oh, and did I mention working with the Feds? Give it up plumbum, and go back under your bridge.

What does "going after the gangs" look like plumbum? How do you know he isn't working with FPD (whose jurisdiction this was in) as well as MSP, and the other independent police departments? (hint...he is doing just that). More trolling from you.


Shootings in Frederick seem to be occurring on a regular basis these days, and I don't see it getting any better. Growing pains, I guess..... [lol]


You should definitely move someplace else, where there are no shootings. Where in the US is that, given our love for guns.
